Matt Hardy has discussed the apparent brand split that could be coming to AEW when Collision kicks off in June and what it could mean in reality for the company’s stars.
Reports have suggested that when Collision debuts on June 17th there could be something of a brand split in AEW that has been described variously as anywhere from soft to hard.
The belief is that the returning CM Punk will be a part of the new show as the company seeks to separate him from The Elite following the infamous backstage fight at All Out 2022. In addition, publicity for Collision has touted the inclusion of Miro, Samoa Joe, Thunder Rosa, Scorpio Sky, and Andrade El Idolo – all stars who have been featured less regularly on Dynamite in recent months for various reasons.
Speaking on The Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, the star commented on the potential brand split and says he hopes that those on the roster can get clarity over the schedules so they can still live a somewhat normal life:
“People want to plan vacations and family time and trips and whatnot and it’s kind of tricky because as of now everybody kind of has to leave everything open.
“So, I’ll be happy when Collision gets here and they kind of have really a good lock on what roster is on Dynamite and what roster is on Collision, there’ll be some guys that float back and forth.”
“I hope it’s a pretty regular schedule so the guys that are involved can live a regular life.”
Matt Hardy was in action on The Buy In ahead of Double Or Nothing where he teamed with Jeff Hardy and HOOK to defeat Ethan Page and The Gunns meaning that Hardy now owns the contract of Page.
